I was trying to test this patch. But I'm not getting proper data.
Here is what I'm doing...

$ cat hello.c
#include <stdio.h>

void foo1(int a[])
    printf("%d\n", a[2]);

void foo(int a[])
    printf("%d\n", a[1]);

void main()
    int a[3] = {4, 5, 6};
    printf("%d\n", a[0]);

$ gcc -g hello.c -o hello
$ sudo ./perf probe -x ~/hello foo1 'a=a:x32[3]'
$ sudo cat /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/uprobe_events
p:probe_hello/foo1 /home/ravi/hello:0x00000000000005fc a=+96(%gpr31):x32[3]

$ sudo ./perf record -e probe_hello:foo1 ~/hello
$ sudo ./perf script
hello  6913 [038]  2857.704470: probe_hello:foo1: (100005fc) a={0xd69e4400,0x7fff,0x0}

I don't see proper values of the 'a'? Anything wrong with my perf commands :) ?
